PA German Barn Stars

These geometric designs are painted on the sides of many barns in our area of PA. Though many call them Hex signs and attribute additional meanings to the symbols, they are really painted "chust (just) fer pretty".  Often, I've heard credit for these given to the Amish but these are too decorative, colorful and prideful for their culture.
